This is a frequently asked question. The question is straightforward, but the answer is a little more challenging. The truth is that when it comes to medical marijuana card costs, there are no hard and fast regulations.
Marijuana prices vary depending on its quality, quantity, location, and competition. We’ll do our best to break it down for you so you know how much you should expect to pay.
The price of marijuana buds varies depending on the quality and place of purchase. A gram of buds can cost anywhere from $5 to $20; an eighth (3.5 grams) can cost anywhere from $20 to $60; and an ounce can cost anywhere from $200 to $400.
Medical marijuana can be purchased in concentrated forms, such as hash, oils, and waxes containing higher THC levels.
The potency of concentrates is usually higher than that of buds. Concentrates are usually offered in half-gram and gram increments, with prices ranging from $20 to $60 per gram.
Patients who are unable or unwilling to smoke marijuana can benefit from edible marijuana products. Brownies and other baked items are not the only edible products.
Medical marijuana-laced components can be used in pizzas, burritos, and even ice cream recipes. Prices for edible items are typically determined by doses, which should be clearly stated on the packaging. Expect to pay about $2-$5 per dose for edible medical marijuana items.
Tinctures are concentrated liquid medical marijuana that come in one-ounce bottles with a dropper. Tinctures are frequently used in cooking and are beneficial to people who do not want to smoke. Alcoholic beverages can also be blended with tinctures. Tincture bottles range in price from $15 to $50, depending on the strength.
To visit a dispensary, you’ll need a medicinal marijuana recommendation (not a prescription).
The cost of a referral varies by state and municipality, but new patients should expect to pay between $80-$200. Renewals are necessary every year and are usually less expensive than the initial recommendation.
Smoking tools come in a wide range of styles. Rolling papers are as little as $2, glass pipes are around $20, and a water pipe can cost anywhere between $50 and $300. Vaporizers range in price from $100 to $700.
